New York City is a tough place to find an apartment, as we all know. Everyone panics that they aren’t getting enough for their money, which is why we take a weekly look at what you can get in this town for around $1,000 per person (and we promise there’ll be no nightmare apartment listing). No one wants to end up in the world’s most depressing apartment (and equally, not everyone has the cash to get the kind of place Obama could afford to rent if he moves to New York), so take a look at these attractive, spacious places—but do it quickly, because they will be gone before you know it. Come back next week for more of our top picks from real-estate site Zumper’s inventory. And if you’re still struggling, try our NYC apartments guide.

Manhattan Ave

Four-bedroom in Harlem, $3,300/month ($825 per person)

Yes, you’re seeing that right: This uptown gem is less than two blocks from Central Park and Morningside Park, with an actual view of the latter and the Cathedral Church of St. John the Divine. If parks and views aren’t your thing (weirdo), the hardwood floors, French doors and easy access to the B and C trains should win you over.

St. Marks Pl #7E

Two-bedroom in the East Village, $2,400/month ($1,200 per person)

Okay, so we’re pretty sure there’s some kind of mistake in the listing, because giant, sun-drenched flats with built-in shelving don’t just appear in Alphabet City. But we’ll suspend our disbelief long enough to admire the spotless, updated kitchen (is that a dishwasher?), generous layout and ample closet space.

300 10th St #27

Three-bedroom in Park Slope, $3,483/month ($1,161 per person)

We’re not sure whether this area is considered Gowanus, Park Slope, South Slope or some other realtor-named portmanteau (please, not that), but we do know it’s a pretty prime location, with proximity to Red Hook, Prospect Park and a whole slew of bars and restaurants. And the airy, renovated interior—complete with a brand-new kitchen and dishwasher—is nothing to shake a stick at, either.

Morgan Ave #4

Three-bedroom in Greenpoint, $2,750/month ($917 per person)

Yes, it is possible to live in Greenpoint for well under a grand apiece at this railroad-style abode. The tradeoff is that it’s a bit of a slog to the subway, but that also means it’s removed from the throngs off Manhattan and Nassau and is just steps from McGolrick Park. Plenty of natural light and closet space seal the deal.

116 Bushwick Ave #2

Four-bedroom in Williamsburg, $3,600/month ($900 per person)

Williamsburg for a mere $900 a pop? Either we’ve accidentally stepped back in time, or we need to jump on this place, stat. Aside from a ridiculously convenient location right off the Grand Ave L stop, the place actually looks pretty spacious, with a nice roomy common area off the kitchen and gleaming hardwood floors.
